1989 V3500 - The 1Ton SSB

  • Welcome to the build. This is my second squarebody build and my personal dream truck. I have built this truck in my head since I bought my first K5 almost 14 years ago. I am self taught and have been learning/lurking on CK5 and pirate since 2005. Anyways, on to the truck...

    I will try to keep the words to a minimum and the pics kinda in order.
    I bought this truck in 2014 with a blown 6.2 diesel for $1K. It had all the goodies. Th400, round pattern np205 with fixed yokes, 1 tons with 4.56 gears.

    Yes this is a very slow build but I should have plenty of material to cover until I reach current status. Breaking a leg, having a kid, moving, and buying a house has a way of slowing things way down....
